New Zealand School of Dance Graduation Season 2014

New Zealand School of Dance Graduation Season 2014

19 – 29 November 2014 at New Zealand School of Dance, Wellington

Presented at the end of each year, Graduation Season is an important tradition at the New Zealand School of Dance. Students from the School’s full-time programme perform the work of iconic choreographers from the worlds of classical ballet and contemporary dance.

George Balanchine’s great masterpiece ‘Concerto Barocco’ is music-made-visible as two elegant lead ballerinas each depict an instrumental soloist in Bach’s virtuosic double violin concerto. Excerpts from revered New Zealand dance theatre artist Douglas Wright's tranquil and powerful ‘RAPT’ are juxtaposed against ‘Purcell Pieces’ from acclaimed choreographer Nils Christe, which soars with breathtaking pace and a swirling palette of colour. Among the other works, Dutch choreographer Wessel Oostrum’s poignant and touching solo ‘The Speech’, danced to a monologue by Charlie Chaplin from the film ‘The Great Dictator’, stands out as a tribute to those who lost their lives in World War I.

Reflecting the School’s dedication to excellence and innovation, New Zealand School of Dance Graduation Season is a rare opportunity to experience performance by the next generation of dance professionals.
